    The Bots: the world's first virtual band

    The Bots are being touted as the world's first virtual band. They are artificial personalities who appear as animated 3d models and rap and sing with speech synthesizers.



    "The Bots illustrate a future where artists, actors, performers and all sorts of media figures will be not human, but sophisticated human-like simulations. That this will happen is a simple issue of economics. As artificial personality simulations become more effective, entertainment conglomerates will find human "creatives" and "stars" to be increasingly irrelevant, replaceable, and disposable."

    According to their site " The Bots want you to think for yourself, and throw off the yoke of media fabrication and corporate mind control. The Bots want to encourage you to think a little more deeply about our planet, our future, and our interaction with technology."

    "The Bots are here to demonstrate entertainment technology as a force for good, a force for freedom, rather than a mind-numbing tool of corporate control. Synthia v2 is the most advanced human simulation on the planet. Most observers agree that she has more personality and lyrical depth than most if not all of the human female divas on the pop charts right now. In fact, Synthia's not even playing their game. She's on a larger mission for world peace, love and harmony. Really."

    I'm not making this up.

    That can't be too hard for her seeing that between all the Divas on the pop charts don't have half a brain between them!
    Hard to believe.

    Say, "The Bots" five times fast!

    Well, I'll admit they gave her a nice set of lungs but what more does a diva need to sell today?

    Whoa

    I thought at first this was some kind of exagerated joke or something - but this guy who does this is taking this VERY seriously. Hmmm. The Bots are gonna save us all from corporate greed and musical freedoms being suppressed? hmmm. IMO seems like someone needs to lighten up a bit.

    Yup, that about sums it up.

    I truly believe that the characters in the game "The Sims" put on a better show than "The Bots".
